TAG Heuer is synonymous with the history of Motor Racing, with much of their own history intertwined with many famous racing competitions from around the world. The Formula 1 collection from TAG Heuer is influenced by modern sport and history alike.
This particular Formula 1 celebrates the history and partnership with Gulf Oil, a brand which also has much of its history intertwined with Motor Racing, muchly famed with the likes of the Ford GT40 part of the legendary John Wyer Team. A special edition for 2018 with the famous signature colours of light blue and orange are the makeup of this handsome commemorative watch.
Configured in the classic Formula 1 chronograph, the brushed finished stainless-steel 43mm case is accentuated by a fixed blue aluminium tachymeter bezel and black PVD crown and pushers. The case back is finished in great detail, with a special engraving of the Gulf logo.
A blue dial with white counters and a 60 second inner ring is utilised to read the chronograph functionality measuring hours and minutes. The highlighting feature of the dial without question is the duo stripes of light blue and orange for a subtle nod to Gulf and racing fans. A rapid correction date window is placed at the 3 o’clock position. All of this intricate design is displayed behind a flat sapphire crystal with a double of anti-reflective coating.
Within the casing lays the TAG Heuer quartz movement, one of the most reliable and accurate made in Switzerland. Powered by battery an electrical current runs through the workings causing the quartz crystals to vibrate consistently at a frequency of 32,768 times per second resulting in a precise beat with a variation of just a few seconds per month.
Finishing off the look of this piece is the asphalt textured blue calf-skin leather strap with orange stitching to perpetuate the Gulf colour coding and fixed to the wrist with a brushed steel pin buckle.
Complete with a two-year international warranty and TAG Heuer presentation box this special edition timepiece is the perfect gift for racing fans and a great collectable for any watch or Gulf memorabilia collector.
